Takane & Hana Yuki Shiwasu Manga Review

I received volume 1 of Takane & Hana from Viz for free to review here on my blog. Opinions expressed in this review are my own. Note: This review may contain spoilers for volume 1 of the manga.

Orange Manga Review + Crunchyroll Begins Airing Orange Anime Based on the Manga by Ichigo Takano

I'm not as big of a reader as I used to be when I was younger, however, the last few seasons of anime have not held much to capture my interests, and being single again I find myself with too much spare time. So this past year I've been reading a lot of manga!

This review is for the manga version :) There may be some slight spoiler for the first volume - I have tried to avoid them and keep this as brief and condensed as possible but if you're worried, I'd recommend reading or watching
